Make-Up Art Cosmetics

Back in 2009 Richard Phillips, the artist I interviewed a few weeks ago, collaborated with MAC cosmetics. This is a big deal. Especially for those of us who are simultaneously obsessed with beauty products as well as art. Lucky for me, I was able to find images from his complete collection, though it’s no longer available. I’m actually glad I was able to see it. As a great collaborator, Phillips and digital artist Pascal Dangin, retouched a painting he was going to show at the Gagosian with the colors from his MAC collection. The piece is called “Der Bodensee” and it’s a large hyper realistic painting of a woman’s face. Her face is racy, sultry and blithely unaware of her looks.

Pink and Pouty

Lately I’ve been stalking MAC counters across NYC for a new lipstick. I want something a little crazy, like a matte bubble gum pink that I can wear everyday. I just don’t know what color to chose, I’m so indecisive. I kind of want the Viva la Glam Nicki Minaj color. It’s very pink, with almost peachy undertones. I’m also considering Pink Noveau and St. Germain, although I can’t seem to find it in any store. I keep picking up a color that I think is called “Amplified” but I can’t find it on the internet anywhere. I know MAC has a line of lipsticks called Amplified, but this clearly was the color’s name. I’m probably going to have to bite the bullet and just purchase one and hope it works out.

Saturday Night Chic

Tomorrow night….is Saturday. My best friend is coming up to New York to visit me and tour NYU since she was accepted their for graduate school. We plan on hitting up one of the hottest, most coveted bar/club in the city. I wanted to post what I’m thinking of wearing. This club is for the fashion elite, who’s who, models, press, pr power players and bosses of the city, so I have to be on my A-game fashion-wise. Here’s what I got so far:

  1. Hot Pink H&M Blazer
  2. H&M floral corset top (the one pictured is from Topshop and looks similar to mine)
  3. Black Lace Shorts from Zara
  4. House of Holland suspender tights from Topshop
  5. Black suede-looking wedges from H&M
  6. Pink Noveau lipstick from MAC (contemplating buying to complete this look)

If this all works out, I’ll definitely post pictures from my night out.
